p.2 The Late Destructive Fire

The Brockville Recorder notices the state of Navigation on the river, that while there are 3 boats on the Bay of Quinte, there is only the Brockville on the River, the Ontario being broken, and the Dolphin detained at Ogdensburgh for debt. We suppose this state of things will be remedied. The Dolphin has been released, and arrived here this morning.

A large and superb three-masted Schooner lately rebuilt by the Messrs. Ives, left this port on her first trip to the head of the lake on Sunday last. She is intended for the Lumber Trade, and we understand from good judges that she works remarkably well.

The navigation of the Rideau Canal commenced last week.

p.3 Court of Common Council - the Mayor of Kingston thanks Artillery and Capt. Sandom of the Navy for their help at the late fire.
